Fire investigators are looking into the cause of yet another fire at a western Pennsylvania mobile home park struck by numerous arsons in recent weeks
SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) — Fire investigators are looking into the cause of yet another fire at a western Pennsylvania mobile home park struck by numerous arsons in recent weeks.
Fire crews in the borough of Somerset and surrounding areas were called to the Cherry Lane Estates mobile home park at about 2:20 a.m. Saturday for what was reported as a “fully involved structure fire.”
Authorities say there have been six arson fires there since the beginning of May and 11 since 2011. There were two fires set on Wednesday night.
Somerset police chief Randy Cox told The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat that a resident reported chasing a man dressed in dark clothing into a wooded area soon after Wednesday night’s fires broke out.
